After yesterday's story from Dave Martin, who has just returned from New Zealand, we are delighted to reveal that another Audlem resident holidaying there immediately picked up the story on the other side of the world.
We won't give his full name as we never reveal the full name of people who are away from home so we will limit his identification to Tony, who wrote:
"I read Dave Martin's comments on communication with New Zealand with some interest. If this message reaches you intact then you will know that the link now extends some 80k South of Christchurch to beautiful Akaroa on the Banks Peninsular.
"Will try again next week from Lake Wanaka, some 400k South.
"Couldn't resist including the photo of Akaroa from the hills above. ARS would really enjoy the walking opportunities.
"Happy New Year
